to meet with parties in paris to start peace negotiations. it was successful in that matter to yes? >> this is a question about the relationships between the two successive first ladies, jacqueline bouvier kennedy and labor johnson. i seem to remember, jackie kennedy referred to mrs. johnson is lyndon johnson's trained hunting dog at one point, to which i feel, i would rather have a trained hunting dog rather than a french poodle if you want to get something done. but there are many pictures of lyndon johnson and bill signing ceremonies. i'm wondering about that. >> mrs. johnson hosted a reception for the new senate wives in 1953 after the kennedys were married. mrs. kennedy certainly stood out as a glamorous and intelligent young cenobite. they knew each other a decade for the assassination. during the vice presidential period, mrs. johnson was asked to substitute for mrs. kennedy at events, dinners, receptions, teas, events, and she did so. i don't think they were close, personally, or socially, but they had inimical relationship. mrs. johnson visited the kennedy compound at hyan

was a obsessed with his race and the ads comparing him to paris hilton partly because his agenda was mostly the standard democratic agenda reversing the bush era and investing in the future. he cares a lot about policy but he's not a policy entrepreneur and the campaign wasn't about new ideas, it was about this relentless message of change and that aspirational we can believe an addendum says maybe he would follow through on the old ideas that never seem to go anywhere and he has. except for those ideas about changing washington and moving beyond the partisan conflict. those didn't really pan out. there's an awful lot of partisan conflict in this book and here on the upper left side i should probably be telling war stories about kobach versus the republicans, but because i'm a contrarian, i thought i would read just a little bit on my take on obama versus hillary because i think it helps actually explain the next four years. the case for obama wasn't a substantive case for changing policy. hillary was making a similar case with a resume. the case for obama was a political case for why those
of political life. political life as a drop down from brussels to berlin, from brussels to paris can from brussels to rome, in a way that has made it very hard for the e.u. to thrive. and it is today an uneasy tension between the collective governance that europe needs to thrive, and the political strength in europe which has become somewhat anti-european. i think they have turned the corner. i think they have found a formula for keeping greece in, for allowing the euro to survive. and european leaders like chancellor merkel in germany are starting to lead and talk about the importance of european experiments which has revolution, historical importance. so i'm getting bullish again. but if you were to say to me, you know, what keeps me up at night, i still worry about the global financial crisis spreading outward, because the euro zone goes belly up. and if that happens it's going to be ugly. i think we have run out of time. i apologize to you by two or three people in line, but i'll be happy to answer your questions personally after the talk. thank you very much.

and paris, we see the triumph of the developed world cities. but the success of the city in the developed world is nothing relative to what's happening in the developing world. we've recently reached that halfway point where more than half of humanity now lives in urbanized areas, and it's hard not to think on net that's a good thing. because when you compare those countries that are more than 50% to those less than 50% urbanized, the countries on average have income levels that are five times higher. gandhi famously said the growth of a nation depends not on its cities, but on its villages. with all due respect to the great man, on this one he was completely and utterly wrong. because, in fact, the future of india is not made in villages which too often remain mired in the poverty that has plagued most of humanity throughout almost all of its existence. it is the cities, it is bangalore, mumbai, it is delhi that are the places that are the pathways out of poverty into prosperity. they are the places that are the conduits, the channels across civilizations and continents and the place whe
